Brechfa Forest Barns offers 3 beautifully furnished, cosy mountain top retreats with INCREDIBLE VIEWS in the heart of the stunning Carmarthenshire countryside. At the edge of the Brechfa Forest and at 1000 feet, we boast unrivalled views of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion and are perfectly placed to explore the delights of these 3 counties.

We are totally DOG FRIENDLY with NO LIMIT ON NUMBERS! With plenty of WALKING from the door, along forest trails and with West Wales offering over 260 miles of coastal paths you will never run out of places to ramble.

For MOUNTAIN BIKERS the Brechfa Forest Trails are world renowned and almost unlimited fire tracks start opposite the barn entrance. The location also makes us a great base for a tour of the Welsh trail centres plus we have our own resident MIAS MTB guide and amazing fleet of full-suspension hire bikes.

The Brecon Beacons are just a short drive away and there are plenty of popular ATTRACTIONS nearby including Aberglasney House and Gardens, Carreg Cennan Castle, Oakwood Theme Park, The National Botanical Garden of Wales and many more. There are a selection of lovely PUBS and restaurants nearby and we also offer a mouth-watering menu of HOME MADE MEALS.

The 2 barns are next door to each other (and adjoining). Although they are both entirely separate there is a connecting door which can be opened should guests wish to book the 2 barns together. The Old Bike Shed is next door to the barns, an annex of the owner's farmhouse but totally separate with it's own entrance. Each property can be booked separately or together to cater for groups of 2-14. For larger groups the furniture is moved to create 1 communal lounge area and 1 communal dining area.

Each barn has their own ENCLOSED GARDEN with garden furniture and a shared BBQ. The Old Bike Shed has it's own ENCLOSED MINI COURTYARD. There is PARKING right outside, bike wash and secure bike storage.
